Appear before PAC today or face the consequences - Chairman to Municpal, District assemblies

The chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, James Klutse Avedzi, has cautioned Municipal and District assemblies in the Greater Region to appear before the committee before the close of Tuesday, January 14, 2020.

According to him, failure to heed to the caution will attract sanctions from parliament.

This comes after only three assemblies out of the eleven in the region showed up to answer questions on the 2015/2016 report of the Auditor General.

The Ga South Municipal, Ga Central Municipal and Ningo Prampram District assemblies are the only ones currently present at the committee’s sitting to respond to questions.

The others expected to appear are the Ga East Municipal, Shai Osudoku District, La Dadekotopon Municipal, Ada West District, Ada East District, Adentan Municipal, Accra Metropolitan and La Nkantanan Medina Municipal.

"The report we have here indicates that only 3 districts are here. We are issuing this directive for all the assemblies that are supposed to appear to come here today, failure of which the committee will decide on the actions to be taken because we have sent letters since 3rd January." James Avedzi said.
